IMA Dairy & Food USA has hired longtime packaging and dairy sector sales specialist, Daniel Margherio, as its national business development manager. In this role, Margherio’s primary focus will be IMA’s Fillshape business unit, which manufactures and designs filling systems for flexible stand-up pouches (both with and without spout) in dairy, food, beverage and personal care applications.
Most recently, Margherio was business development manager, Liquid Food & Beverage for packaging provider, Fres-Co System USA, a position he held since 2016. Prior to that, he held business development management roles with snack and confectionery manufacturer, The Warrell Corporation, as well as with Farmland Dairies of Wallington, NJ. At Farmland, Margherio enjoyed a decade-long tenure particularly relevant to his new role with IMA Dairy & Food.
Margherio comes to IMA Dairy & Food at a time when the packaging solutions company has recently introduced Zero Technology, a means of producing single-serve, sustainability-minded PET cups for dairy and other food items. In Q4 of 2022, the company also took over sales activities for extrusion blow mold machinery suppler AlphaMAC, an Italy-based equipment provider (and IMA Group member) specialising in solutions for the packaging of liquid products.
“Daniel’s track record of overseeing successful, often double-digit sales growth will help IMA continue to grow our North American market share in the dairy and greater food packaging landscape,” said Patrick Carroll, president of IMA Dairy & Food USA. “His highly relevant background, impressive skill set and engaging personality make him exceptionally well-suited for his new role, and we’re delighted to welcome him.”
Margherio earned a degree in Business Administration from the State University of New York (SUNY) Binghamton. He resides in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
